    Snickers was originally named Marathon but the name was changed when they expanded the sale of the product to other countries

      @Sleepy: Sources? From everything I’ve read about the history of Snickers it was only called Marathon in the United Kingdom and Ireland and then only until around 1990 when the name was changed to Snickers to match the name it had always been sold under in the rest of the world.

    Hahah I remember Tang. My father’s old restaurant was next door to the Tang factory and we used to serve a lot of those guys. Crazy seeing 100 foot tanks of orange powder.

    When I was in 4th grade (1978/79) it took my friend and I (ew gross to do this but what do kids care?) 847 random ‘licks’ to get to the center of a tootsie roll tootsie pop.

    (smaller person is smaller lick I guess). :P

    I was not aware of this, the article was pretty interesting. I just love snickers and enjoyed reading about it. :-)
    My dad used to bring a bunch of it for me every time I scored well in the exams; may be, that inspired me to do study well..:-)
